Kaliwo defiant, says will file fresh application in court against MCP

Malawi Congress Party (MCP)  embittered suspended Secretary General  Gustuv Kaliwo  has said he will file fresh notice to High Court after registrar Justus Kishindo on Monday set aside the summons of  Kaliwo and others, restraining the party from conducting any party activity including the convention.

Kaliwo: Matter is not over

Kishindo had set aside the Kaliwo summons on technicality, following a  typographical error where instead of writing 28 days they had put 14 days.

But Kaliwo, a trained lawyer, said his camp which includes vice-president Richard Msowoya, treasurer general Tony Kandiero, deputy secretary general Chatonda Kaunda and fired publicity secretary Jessie Kabwila,  would make a fresh application following the ruling that their summons could not stand due to the typo mistake.

“We have lost because the matter has not been heard on merit,” said Kaliwo in an interview.

“All I can say we have been delayed. This matter is not over,” he added.

Kaliwo said they are making a “fresh application.”

Justus Kishindo In his ruling said having considered arguments from both sides, he was of the opinion that MCP application should succeed over that of Kaliwo’s faction, which he said must fail on costs.

People in the county want change and nothing can stop it!


Watumidwa uyu


Judge has Powers to correct minor errors like number of days in the interest of justice rather than propagating these delays. Some Judges are mere cowards to mete out sound judgements. I wonder where they got their training and exposure!


Kaliwo amatamba.

Popeza akuoneka odwala mukuluyu. Mwina ndi matenda akumupangisa zimenezi.


After receiving some cash from DPP to distabilise the party, he will still want to please his masters. Do you bow low to such a huge sum of money? Hmmm, you will want to show that you are working.

Shithole DPP
Kaliwo we know that you are an agent of dpp. Why do you want to abuse the courts? There are so many people out there that want the same court and you behave as if MCP employed you. People join politics on their own and that is a choice you make. I would suggest that the courts stop this nonsense of being abused by such selfish people. The convention is where you can contest and not the courts.Kaliwo you have the freedom to join other parties just like Felix Jumbe. There are hundreds of people who leave their parties and… Read more »

Just wasting time, chosechotu manyazi kuti anthu awaseka kuti akulu ozitama pamalamulo zikuwavuta kukhoti. But people can see through your motives.


Koma MCP inathadi eti. Zoona mpaka anthu 5 okha akasokoneze chipani? Munthawi yathu anthuwa akanafa pa ngozi yosadziwika bwino or tikanawaponya mu ng’ona ku Nsanje or ku Maula


This man needs some little panel beating so that he understands that what he is doing is useless! A point of elasticity has been reached now.
